Mask Mandates

All theme parks that have reopened have made changes to what our new normal looks like. We have seen temperature screenings, social distancing, and all kinds of mask policies. Who would have thought that these words would become part of our vocabulary? I certainly did not!

Last spring, we saw the face mask policy change. Many places allowed masks to be removed outdoors. Then came a complete drop of the masks, indoors and outdoors! This was an amazing change for all those summer vacationers.

It is hot in Florida during the summer without a mask. This change let guest decide on their own if they wanted to wear a mask or not.

When cases spiked again, masks returned to indoor use at both Universal and Disney World. However, things are about to change.

Mask Mandates Expiring

We recently shared information about California’s mask mandate expiring. Read about that HERE.

Currently, Florida has almost no requirements for masks or vaccines. So it is not surprising to see a Florida theme park be the first to drop the mask mandate again.

After this park’s announcement will we see more follow?

Universal Drops Mask Mandate

Effective tomorrow – Saturday, February 12 – fully vaccinated guests will no longer be required to wear face coverings indoors or outdoors at Universal Orlando Resort. Guests who have not been vaccinated will be encouraged to wear face coverings while indoors.

Masks are no longer required for fully vaccinated guests indoors or outdoors at Universal Orlando Resort. Guests who are not vaccinated are encouraged to wear face masks while indoors.

This is amazing news for park goers! Almost all other safety measures that were put in place are no longer in use. This is hopeful a sign of a return to normal.

Will Disney follow? I know I will be closely watching! Be sure to check back here, as we will keep you up to date with the most up-to-date news!

  1. They never should have reinstated them. Fearful knee-jerk reaction based on mainstream media hype. All Universal did was loose out on business from people who didn’t show up. Hopefully this has been a lesson learned and we have seen the last time face diapers will ever be mandatatory at Unviersal. I would hope Disney would follow suit as they are now back to being the only place in central Florida still requiring masks, but it’s hard to say with Cheapskate… I mean Chapek at the helm.
